Geared Towards Growing Sustainable Industries.


The Namibia Industrial Development Agency (NIDA) is a commercial State-Owned Enterprise (SOE) resorting under the Ministry of Industrialisation and Trade (MIT).

NIDA, which came into existence in 2018, was established in terms of Act 16 of 2016, to advance Namibia’s industrialisation agenda in line with the country’s policies and developmental strategies, such as the Growth at Home Strategy, Harambee Prosperity Plan and 5th Namibia Development Plan (NDP5).
